'Underbelly' Print by Rankin
Own one of ten prints of
'Underbelly', created by world famous celebrity photographer Rankin. Your print
will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Rankin. Rankin chose
the 'Underbelly' print as it was originally shot for his new fashion magazine
Rank, and is quite a recent favourite fashion image of his. It is also special
due to the fact that it was the first shoot he undertook for the debut of his
new magazine and feels that it will stand the test of time due to the humour
within the image.
Rankin is noted for his first class pop
culture and controversial fashion photography having captured the faces of Mel
C, Helena Christenssen, Kylie Minogue, Madonna, David Bowie and Radiohead's Thom
Yorke in unprecedented style. He consolidated his reputation as one of Britain's
finest portrait photographers after establishing and carrying out work for Dazed
